Kyle Kuzma’s agent disputed a report that surfaced this week about the 25-year-old Los Angeles Lakers forward having a feud with starting guard Dennis Schroder.
The report from Jordan Schultz of ESPN said that Schroder and Kuzma “feuded throughout the season, with things going further south throughout the Lakers’ first-round series loss to Phoenix.”
Kuzma’s agent, Vin Sparacio, took issue with the report, which he made clear in with an Instagram story, calling Schultz a clown.
Kuzma and Schroder have remained quiet following the report. The Lakers have been good at keeping things in-house during the season, choosing what gets out. But there never appeared to be a rift between Kuzma and Schroder, at least on the court. Both have been involved in trade rumors and there’s a chance that they could be on different teams next season, with Schroder being an unrestricted free agent and Kuzma holding the distinction of being one of the Lakers key trade chips.
